-edit- Originally thought this was a LightDM issues because switching to GDM fixed it - however GDM is doing the same thing now-
I’m having issues with volume controls, and Chromium/Chrome when using LightDM. If I move the volume slider in the task bar it will freeze the computer for about 15 seconds. Also, if I launch Chromium (or Chrome) it takes about 15 seconds to launch, whereas Firefox will launch in about 2 seconds.
At first I thought something goofy had happened with my Antergos install, but after a fresh install the problem still persists. Also, thinking it might have been an issue with Gnome I tried a fresh install with KDE, as well as LXDE. Same issue.
I just discovered if I switch from LIghtDM to GDM the issue goes away! Volume adjust works great, and Chrome launches right away. Has anyone else experience this? Is there a fix that would allow me to use LightDM again?
